and it doesn't stand up because by this standard again you would not let anyone serve in government that you di agreed with. >> but it's based on a grudge. it's based on a bitter grudge 4e held by senator mccain. what possible principle is he using to uphold the nomination of a defense secretary given that this nation is at war? >> i don't think it's principled. i think it is unfortunate, and equally important it doesn't stand up because this is a senator here who wanted george w. bush and republicans, of course, to get their team in, and now he's got this grudge. if you take a step back, i'm not the biggest chuck hagel fan in the world anyway. if republicans don't like it, when president obama appoints republicans, he won't even try to reach out. it's not a two-sided problem in washington. the democrats have a role because harry reid didn't get through filibuster reform. he should have so they held onto the process -- >> but that had nothing to do with what happened yesterday? >> but they are not the abusers, they are the enablers and the abusers are john mccain and people who don'

president's cabinet cannot get the support of its own government, albeit that there are just a handful of republicans, then the whole credibility of the united states not only in national security but in fiscal responsibility as -- >> but you see, here is the problem, sir. a new abc news/"washington post" poll shows overwhelmingly people like this president's policies and they don't like the gop's. now, given the republican's performance over the last four years, do you expect exactly the same in terms of obstruction, opposition for the next four years and can this country afford almost a decade of republican obstruction? >> the president gave them a free ride when he came to affordable health care. he tried to compromise. he listened to both sides. he allowed them to put up 32 different amendments. i think this time he has to go directly to the american people. this is his last shot out to give a report to the entire american people as to what he wants to see for america, get our jobs back, make certain that we have education, make certain that we have a secure national defense and to ma

. because his personal development was dependent upon the significant role of government. his maternal grandfather, who fought in the second world war, was only able to attend college because of the gi bill. the president himself was able to pursue higher education because of student loans and scholarships. without them who knows where he'd have ended up. and that's why in the same speech in which he talked about his absent father, the president also argued for preschool education for every child and not just for those who could afford it. he mentioned training institutions to equip young people for the future. he was describing the scaffolding that most of us need in order to build successful lives. you know, almost exactly 45 years ago dr. martin luther king, jr. preached a sermon at the national cathedral in washington. in that sermon he described how individuals needed to take responsibility for their own lives, but then he said this. it's all right to tell a man to lift himself by his own bootstraps, but it is cruel jest to say to a bootless man that he ought to lift hims

to 1. stimulating the economy, expanding welfare programs and government aid has done nothing to lower poverty levels among blacks and hispanics. it's something a few black thought leaders have tried to tackle. they say that the obama administration has ignored the plight of blacks and the poor in favor of corporate welfare and business interests. this is where conservatives should redirect their attention. a compassionate message combined with empowering and provocative economic policies would be good for the country, good for the poor, and good for the conservative brand. it wasn't that long ago that republicans like jack kemp, newt gingrich, and george w. bush relentlessly advocated for solving poverty. if republicans are smart they will shake off the dust from the democrats war on women campaign. martin, it's all yours. >> it's tuesday february 19th, and republicans, republicans, where for art thou republicans? the president has a message for you. >> if congress allows this meat cleaver approach to take place, it will jeopardize our military readiness, emergency responders, b

wasn't even in government when benghazi occurred. you combine that with the lack of civility and you feel like this is a republican party that's like the bad news bears. they cannot pick an issue and prosecute it. at the end of the day they will lose it. it is all for nothing because they don't have the votes to block it. no cabinet level appointee has ever been filibustered. the republicans have at least i think enough of them agreed not to do that. so you wonder what all this ridiculous theater is about. it's certainly not helping the republican brand. >> and, julian, sorry, ryan, to julian's point let me show you these poll numbers. quinnipiac says the president is more trusted on gun policy, immigration, the environment, everything basically, but his lead on foreign policy is a staggering 14 points. what makes republicans think this is a good thing to have a fight over? >> right. up until recently everybody said, look, politics stops at the water's edge, and that hasn't been the case for the last couple years with this republican party. but it turns out that it wasn't necessarily

assault on big government, but he's not an older white man so maybe this time it will work. but the gop doesn't understand that voters see through the window dressing. they see through the new face pushing old policies. they see through the tupac loving senator whose anti-gay marriage and pro-life and anti-science and pro gun rights and who voted against the violence again women rights. if pac were alive, he would be battling rubio and the rnc. all right. that does it for requesting the cycle." martin, it's yours. >> you've pumped us up. it's monday, february 18th. president's day and the president is about to return home to washington where republicans are waiting to greet him with a cold shoulder and a wet blanket. >> i'm in palm beach, florida, not far from the president. >> the president of the united states sf supposed to lead. >> there's no leadership on the other side of the isle. >> if you want to look at ways to find $1.2 trillion in savings, look at obama care. >> the president was out golfing with tiger woods. >> they had a great time. tying ser a great guy. >> leaks don't ha
